KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – El Dorado County’s Maddie Bowman has won the first gold medal in women’s freeski halfpipe.

The 20 year-old Bowman, a South Lake Tahoe resident, completed the American sweep of gold in the Olympic debut of the event. She was nearly flawless in her winning run, scoring an 89.00 to improve upon her score of 85.80 on her opening run.

The U.S. women’s team advanced all four of its skiers to the final, but only Bowman made the podium as she posted the two best scores of the night.

Bowman can add her Gold to her awards of World Cup titles; she’s the reigning Winter X Games champ; and she’s coming off a victory in December on the Dew Tour. Some achievements came while Bowman was at South Tahoe High.

Bowman’s mother, Sue-Perpall-Bowman, is a current ski coach at El Dorado High.

    Maddie's mother is NOT a ski coach at Eldorado High School; this is incomplete and inaccurate reporting. Here we have an local Olympic athlete and all you report is 5 sentences??? Poor.

    Thanks for covering this MD probably going to do a full story when she returns and is a little easier to get ahold of. Don't let nameless cowards that don't know what they are talking about discourage you. Thanks again
